View Full Version : [ubuntu] When booting in Ubuntu, monitor turns OFF

February 27th, 2010, 02:06 AM
I do not know why, but I was able to install from a disk ubuntu, it told me to restart and when I did it showed the window to choose what os I wanted to run. I clicked on the first one (the one not used for recovery) called generic and it would display the life preserver circle in white, then display a screen of text, and then monitor stops displaying anything. I am using a VGA hookup to a 19 in flatscreen and the power to monitor is on, and computer stays on, but I get no display. I thankyou for any and all help in advance!
